Seems a lot of people have graphic issues especially on Mountain Lion. You might have a better luck by lowering effects a bit. But definitely seems that a patch is needed.

Yep, it's a Mountain Lion issue. I talked to the devs about six months ago and was told a workaround is on the way, but it seems like all hope has been abandoned.

But hey, on my 17" 2010 Macbook Pro the game doesn't run even anymore and I used to have such a good time with it on Lion.

You could try contacting the support to see whether there are any fixes for the HD 4000 (I have Nvidia).

If that fails, Windows might be the only way.
